Gardner Prison Turbines Turned On Captive Population

June 29, 2012

Substation and wiring upgrades that delayed operation of the two turbines next to the prison in Gardner at the North Central Correctional Institution were complete last week according to George Barnes, reporting in the Worcester Telegram & Gazette.

Research by Wind Wise ~ Massachusetts indicates the MassCEC gave the project a $1.25 million grant (out of rate payer and taxpayer funds it manages) to get started. The MA Department of Corrections is probably out the $1.7 million needed for National Grid to bring infrastructure up to industrial turbine capacities.
